Book Review: Waking Storms by Sarah Porter

Waking Storms:

A traumatized girl turned mermaid battles old world traditions and challenging relationships as she fights to understand herself.


  • The multiple point of view structure was used well and developed the characters and plot effectively.
  • The antagonist was still an incredible character that you love be to hate (just like in book one), especially when you learn her secret.
  • The addition of the orphan girls supports the themes and continues to provide awareness of child abuse and neglect like book one, Lost Voices.

Least Favorites:

  • While the trials that the couple faces are valid, the immaturity in handling them was still a bit annoying. It gave the characters a slightly whiney, unlikable tone in my opinion.
  • Some scenes of solitude and the conflicts among the girls felt repetitive at times.

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐
